Why We Like The Yeti SB130 C2 GX Eagle Factory Mountain Bike
Whether we’re sessioning lines at the local dirt park or toeing the line of an enduro series, the Yeti SB130 is ready to tackle just about whatever we can dream up. Built with C/Seiries carbon construction, the frame strikes a solid balance between torsional stiffness and flexibility so we can rail corners and hold our line even in the chunkiest terrain. 140mm of Switch Infinity rear travel is supported by a Fox Factory Float X rear shock for unreal traction on everything from slippery uphill roots to loose, shale-covered downhills. The steep seat tube angle and long reach let us get into the perfect power position on the climbs and give us tons of room to move around the bike on hair-raising technical descents. Short chainstays round out the SB130’s ultra-capable geometry to keep it playful and agile no matter where we take it.
The SB130 C2 Factory build starts with the ever-reliable 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain. With its crisp shifting in almost any weather and wide-range cassette, it has everything we need to tackle any trail we come across. A 150mm Fox Factory 36 fork is smartly spec’d to help soak up big hits in the bike park and be responsive as we bob and weave down the trail. The Fox Factory 36 features a FIT4 damper for easy suspension setup, letting us dial in the suspension to suit our riding style. 4-piston SRAM G2 R brakes let us stop on a dime when things get sketchy and give us precision speed modulation for technical sections where speed isn’t always our best friend. 29-inch DT Swiss wheels are paired with Gearhead-favorite Maxxis tires so we can clean gnarly rock gardens without getting bucked off our line. The Yeti SB130 C2 GX Eagle Factory Mountain Bike has all the capabilities of a long-travel enduro bike in a mid-travel package that actually has us pushing the pace on the climbs.
*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.
